Proof My Kids Are Total Opposites...

Remember how I've said my kids are as different as can be?

Elnora refused the breast, Emmitt refused the bottle.
Elnora slept through the night from 7 weeks, Emmitt still doesn't at 14 months.
Elnora's never been an eater, Emmitt's a human vacuum.
Elnora was always independent, Emmitt's a snuggler.

Well, here's another one to add to the list.

Up until about six months ago, anytime you put Nora in the bathtub, she'd scream her head off. She HATED baths with the fire of a thousand suns. If it was a bath where you were washing her hair, she freaked out even worse. Absolutely hated the water. (which is part of why she doesn't get daily baths, lol.)

In the last month, Emmitt has become the polar opposite of that too. He not only LOVES the bath tub, but he's taken to trying to sneak in there. If we leave the door open, he makes a bee line for the bathroom and tries to climb into the tub. If I see him heading for the bathroom and beat him there in time to pull the door shut, he throws himself on the floor and pitches an absolute fit.

I think my kids are both crazy.

    LOL. That's funny.

    Catie likes baths now that she just goes in the tub instead of the baby tub. She never liked the baby tub. Splashing is her favorite activity ;)

    And also about kids throwing themselves down on the floor. Catie hasn't done that (yet), but I've seen kids do it and it's just so ridiculous. What's really funny is my neighbor's kid who's four or five years old and will still throw himself down occasionally, but does it very softly so he won't hurt himself. He'll lay down in a controlled manner, then throw the fit.

    Too funny. My almost 14 month old does the same thing he tries to sneak in to see if there is water in the tub. Funny considering until he was 11 months old he hated it.

    All 3 of mine are SO different. You would never know they came from the same 2 parents, but that they look so much alike.

    My oldest one is about as sneaky as a mac truck. But my middle child is so sneaky...he's one of those kids who everyone gets nervous when it is too quiet. My baby is SO SO calm compared to the other 2 it is hysterical.

    Thanks for making me laugh.

    I think all kids are crazy, personally.

    You don't believe in child-led bathing?
